A ROSYTH man uncovered a 1500-year-old Roman brooch while out with his metal detector in Kelty.

Delighted John Wilson (47), Daniel Place, found the Dark Ages piece at a permission site at the north side of the village last month.

He said, “I had already found coins at the site dating from the 1700s to the 1950s, as well as a couple of Victorian-era brooches.

“I found this brooch at one of the few places on the site which was untouched. Whoever dropped the brooch had been sitting up on a rocky outcrop.”
